Automated horizontal carousels help businesses and warehouses maximize throughput and picking productivity with more efficient and cost-effective automatic storage and retrieval solutions that also save floor space and reduce worker injury and labor. On average, the automated horizontal carousels can increase picking speeds by 800% and reduce labor by 2/3 through their efficient storage of items and inventory that is always ready for picking.
work smarter with automated horizontal carousels
Automated horizontal carousels and picking solutions allow operators to perform at higher levels because they deliver items directly to the operator. This increases worker productivity since workers are spending most of their time picking instead of traveling and searching through aisles of static shelving. By using the automated horizontal carousels, the same volume of picking from shelving that required several workers can now be done by one worker in less time. To improve accuracy and reduce picking errors, pick-to-light technology directs operators to the exact item and quantity to pick. Typically, labor can be reduced by 2/3 while still maintaining pick volume. If you want to maintain current labor levels, then automated horizontal carousels can increase your picking capacities without needing to add additional labor.
increase throughput & picking productivity
The automated horizontal carousels also maximize throughput and picking productivity with batch picking. Instead of workers picking one order at a time and walking miles a day through the same shelves and aisles multiple times, batch picking allows workers to fill multiple orders in just one rotation of the unit. Orders can be prioritized by importance and inventory availability, allowing your company to accommodate hot picks, extend order cut-off times, and be more customer friendly. In addition, batch picking reduces bottlenecks in shipping or manufacturing and keeps production from halting due to a lost or missing part.
